Newly diagnosed ITP . Hemotologist put me on dexamethasone 4 day and count up to 120000. I then crashed to zero 3 days later. Did another 4 day pulse and went up to 36000 and crashed down to 5000 3 days later. Both crashes while off the dexamethasone. Hemotologist put me on 50 MG prednisone daily and went up to 16000 after 1 week but now I dropped to 10000 after 2 weeks on 50 MG. I never got off for the prednisone yet my counts have went down. Is this normal or to be expected? I know they typically should be higher than 16000 as prednisone should have kicked in by now. Please help. Thanks.
